How to import several product images from one row?

So you are in this situation when you have to import several product images, but you hate to copy rows?

Here’s how you import several images per Product as one row – by separating image URLs with ; (semicolon).

Step 1: Prepare Import File With Several Product Images

Prepare your import file, where you have one row per Product, and put all your images in the same “Image Src” column, delimited by ; (semicolon).

For example:

https://i.com/image-1.jpg ; https://i.com/image-2.jpg

To change images for a Product in this way, you need at minimum the following columns in your import file:

  • ID (or Handle)
  • Image Src

  2. You can add, replace and update images for products the same way.
  3. You can combine both image import methods – have them as several rows, and split by ; (semicolon) in the same cell. As visible in the example image with Product “Jumping Dog”.
  4. Remember to give name for sheet “Products”, so that it knows which sheet contains Products import.
  5. You can update many Product fields at once with the same import file – just put them as additional columns.
